The home of the most famous cherry blossom spot in Tokyo, Nakameguro canal is a blossom wonderland in spring. The canal is lined with shops and stalls especially for the occasion serving festival food and spring-themed treats including plenty of pink champagne. The trees are illuminated in the evening and it looks best as the sunsets, with lanterns naming local people and businesses. Take note that the dates of this festival are sometimes changed slightly to match the blossoms, so keep an eye on the homepage.
